Reports claim Rangers boss Mark Warburton is keen to bring Greg Stewart to Ibrox, with the Yorkshire side also said to be keen.

Boyhood Rangers fan Greg Stewart says he is flattered by interest from the Gers and Leeds United, reports the Dundee Evening Telegraph.

Both clubs have been linked with moves for the Dundee forward, who's turned down the offer of a new contract at Dens Park.

Having entered the final year of his existing deal, it seems increasingly unlikely that Stewart will still be a Dundee player in 12 months' time.

The Dark Blues are said to value the 26-year-old, who scored 11 goals last season in all competitions, at £1.5 million.

However, he would be eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with other clubs from January, should any interested parties fail to match Dundee's demands.

And Stewart's comments suggest he would welcome a change of scenery.

"Sometimes I think 'wow' - three years ago I was working at Grangemouth (oil refinery) and now top teams like Leeds United and Rangers are interested in me," he told the Dundee Evening Telegraph.

"Put it this way, I don’t want to go back to the oil refinery any time soon. I have to pinch myself sometimes when I think about it.

"I want to be somewhere I can play my best football. Whether it is at Dundee we will just have to wait and see.

"I have ambitions, just like most people. I want to play at the highest level I possibly can."

The Daily Record reports that Rangers boss Mark Warburton hopes to add a new striker to his ranks this week, though whether or not Stewart would fit the bill remains to be seen, having spent much of last season as a left-side forward.

Leeds, meanwhile, have captured two attackers in the space of a week, with winger Hadi Sacko following Swedish striker Marcus Antonsson to Elland Road.
